PostSubject: Anyone (in the UK) tried ebay touch up paint?   Tue Mar 03, 2015 4:19 pm

Before I press "buy" on this

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HONDA-WINEBERRY-RED-3-STAGE-KIT-MOTORCYCLE-TOUCH-UP-PAINT-LACQUER-/171245866967?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item27df0c8fd7

I was wondering if anyone has had experience.

Whilst our US couterparts have Colorite, I've been having no luck at all finding a paint match apart from RS Paints, who charge both an arm, leg and major organs. Honda don't do it either.

My local Halfords didn't have the paint mix on their system and I even found a formula online but it didn't make sense to their system.

All I want to do is make it a bit less tatty. Anyone tried this or anything else and found a good match for Wineberry red? (Wishing I'd got a silver one now!)

PostSubject: Anyone in the UK tried e-bay touch up paint ?   Tue Mar 03, 2015 5:16 pm

I  had paint from e-bay when I had the SWing.  I got the aerosol and the brushpot from a place in Ireland and it was really good stuff (mine was digital silver IIRC) and certainly a lot cheaper than RS.  The brand I got  is Auto paint direct from Wilson, Lendrum and Weir , also on Amazon I think.

Depending on the colour your Swing there is a lot of colour shades of nail polish that comes near to the colour match of the Swing. Colour right did no come to match my 09 Swing, and the nail polish can be remove if need be.

I think that I just put Honda paint no. xxxxxx into google and went from there.  It  may well have been Amazon in the end.  The paint number is on a label under the seat IIRC
